Gianni Infantino is the new FIFA President. The Swiss will serve for the rest of the current term that ends in 2019.
He won the four man race in the second round of polling after the first session had failed to produce an outright winner in Zurich, Switzerland on Friday evening.
The race included Prince Ali of Jordan, Asian Football Confederation boss Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al Khalifa of Bahrain and Frenchman Jerome Champagne, a former FIFA deputy secretary General.
Tokyo Sexwale of South Africa withdrew from the race moments to the election time
